The only question that remains after reading this is why they don't do it. Schools? Housing stock? Housing costs? Or is it a big cultural assumption -- that we are all supposed to have two cars and a backyard before we bring children into the world.

Two things to notice in this graphic: First, the substantial difference between electric and "average" (presumably diesel fueled) trains.

Second, and more importantly, that fuel efficiencies track practical (time-based) efficiencies. That is, trips over 500 miles -- fly. Trips under 500 miles -- train or bus. Trips up to 10 miles (if you're in shape for it) -- bike. So whether you're trying to save the world, or just save time, the answer is the same.

Negative induced demand is on display in LA. Maybe they only drive because of the 405? Its hard to believe a traffic study would have predicted this weekend's "unusually light" traffic.
